In Atlanta, crimes such as shootings, rapes, robberies, or assaults occur on many commercial properties, including hotels and motels.  Under Georgia law, a victim of a crime that occurs on the property of an unsafe hotel or motel may be able to recover against the hotel or motel for negligent security. Negligent security is a type of premises liability claim. Premises liability cases in Georgia rest on the principle that a property owner has the legal duty to make sure that lawful visitors or "invitees" to its property are safe…Read More

Generally, the victim of a security guard's bad acts or negligence (false imprisonment, excessive use of force, wrongful detention) may bring a civil lawsuit in Georgia to recover damages for the victim's resulting injuries.  However, because recovering damages in a civil suit requires money, whether it be via a corporate entity with deep pockets or via insurance coverage, a more important question is, "can any corporate defendants also be held responsible for the individual security officer's acts?"  When looking at corporate entities to sue in a case involving a bad…Read More

Yes, victims of crimes such as assaults, shootings, robberies, and rapes in Georgia may be able to sue property owners and operators where those crimes occur under the Georgia law of premises liability.  Victims may also sue the assailants, but, when looking at a civil suit, suing a corporate owner or operator of a premises gives the victim a better chance for monetary recovery, as most individuals, particularly criminals, probably do not have assets with which to pay their victims. Under Georgia law, owners and operators of businesses owe a duty of…Read More

What Is Xarelto? Xarelto is a prescription blood thinner that is prescribed to reduce blood clotting.  Unfortunately, Xarelto is also a potentially dangerous drug that has caused significant injuries to patients taking it. How Does Xarelto Cause Injuries? Xarelto can cause excessive internal bleeding and hemorrhaging that cannot be reversed with a antidote. Xarelto is different from other blood thinners because where other drugs used for similar purposes cause excessive bleeding, Vitamin K can stop the bleeding.  Thus, where a patient who has taken Xarelto begins to bleed, nothing can…Read More

What Is An IVC Filter? IVC filters, which are manufactured by big medical device manufacturers such as Cook and Bard, have been known to cause significant injuries to patients because of safety issues with the IVC devices.  An IVC filter is a medical device in the shape of a cone with spider-like wire, that is implanted into the "inferior vena cava" (IVC). The IVC is the vein that transports deoxygenated blood from the lower/middle part of the body to the right atrium of the heart.  The IVC filter is implanted in order…Read More

The pure volume of traffic in Atlanta makes multiple vehicle car accidents a common occurrence.  Multiple vehicle accidents often cause problems for making personal injury claims because the question of who is responsible is often disputed. To make a personal injury claim under Georgia law, a claimant must show that s/he is not at fault, that the other driver's negligence caused the accident, and the accident caused the claimant to suffer from injuries.  When there are more than 2 vehicles involved, negligence and fault can be difficult to prove, especially…Read More
